Maternity Sessions with Jaci Iles Photography
Capturing The Bump
A maternity session is a great way to capture that special growing belly of yours. Whether this is your first time to experience the joys of pregnancy, your second, or your last, your body is such a beautiful and amazing vessel growing what will soon be your most loved little blessing. We recommend shooting between 26-36 weeks of your pregnancy. Everyone carries their baby differently so there is really no “magic number” of weeks that is best to shoot.
We feel that when you feel like your body is showing enough to really capture this special time of your growing belly, then that is when we should photograph your session. We want you to look visibly pregnant, but still feel comfortable in your skin before the swelling and aches/pains may kick in. If you decide to schedule a certain time frame and then change your mind and want to move earlier or later, we will do our absolute best to accommodate you.
We offer both studio and outdoor photography sessions which result in very different styles.
Studio Maternity photography sessions
These are primarily for you alone but your significant other is welcome to join in for a few images. These studio sessions show more skin to capture every intimate detail of your body. We have a few of these maternity style dresses pictured below for you to use during your session as well a few sheer wraps. We recommend bringing in any sort of lingerie, bra, cheeky style panties, or intimate attire that you would like to include. We are NOT able to include siblings in studio sessions at this time.
Outdoor Maternity Photography sessions
These maternity session are photographed on location for those who wish to include siblings and/or significant others as a primary focus of the session in a beautiful outdoor setting.
These sessions take place outside about 1.5 hours before sunset (weather permitting). These are more fitting for someone who isn’t interested in the studio style of our maternity sessions or would rather incorporate props such a baby shoes, small items from the nursery, etc. in their session. These sessions are fully clothed however, you are more than welcome to use one of our dresses to change in for one of your outfits. We recommend 1-2 outfits during your full session.
